Alford Brownies have raised £200 for Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary after they held their annual charity coffee morning at the weekend. The event was attended by Mr and Mrs Bernard Dodds on behalf of the Seal Sanctury. The Brownies were working for their Hostess Badges and had made table decorations, cakes and invitations. They also had to serve refreshments and wash up, which they did with expert tuition and help from Brown Owl, Mrs Sue Drummond. Stalls were manned by Tawny Owl, Mrs Anne Nash, and the girls ran the games.

Freya Armstrong won the treasure map competition, and received tickets to attend the Seal Sanctuary. The Mablethorpe site also donated a toy seal and this was won by India Firth, a Brownie who is moving into Guides.

This means spaces are available if girls want to join the pack.

The number of sweets in a container was guessed by Mrs Mary Sherratt. Mrs Nancy Wilson, a Trefoil member, was kept busy during the morning with a well stocked tombola and manning the door.
